Happy 2013 to all of my friends!

This is the logo of my up and coming non-profit called Art Around my Heart.  I asked my daughter Allie to draw me something with a heart.  I was racking my brains trying to come up with a name using the word "heart" and "art".  I was pleased to see her picture of an arrow around the heart...so I said "this is it, Art around My Heart" perfect!!
My dream for 2013 is to move forward with my on going dream and desire to start a non-profit organization for art therapy for special needs, developmentally disabled and troubled children and adults.  They will create "one of a kind" art and crafts using a wide range of materials which include "up cycled" material.  I have been collecting art and craft supplies for the past three years.  My mind is bursting with ideas.
The legal process of starting a non-profit is very lengthly and overwhelming for me.  I plan to start one step at a time.  I will began by marketing my idea to local agency's and began teaching on site.  All supplies for the projects will be provided at no charge to the student by Art around My Heart.
Wish me luck and much success!
